What makes us unique
Teacher-Mentors representive of students
Teacher-mentors are hired from the community or similar backgrounds, so they can relate to the students and serve as role models.
Cross Age Mentoring
High school students visit a local elementary school each week to teach the same character qualities and life skills they are learning in class; becoming leaders and role models.
Year Round Programming
Programs are not limited to the school year, but offered year round.
Long Term Relationship Approach
Teacher-mentors work with students from year to year, allowing for a "pipeline" of influence from 2nd through 12th grade.
Whether you measure it in academic outcomes, lives changed, or the cost savings to society, one thing proves true: the Elevate model is effective. Outcomes from Elevate affiliates across the U.S. show the following results.
The average graduation rate in urban schools across the United States hovers around the 58% mark. For students who participate in Elevate programs for three years or more, the graduation rate improves to a 90%.
96% Post Secondary
Whether these graduates go on to college, technical training or the military. These students are being prepared for future success and leadership in their spheres of influence.
Along with improved school
success, a six year longitudinal study
conducted by a third party evaluator shows significant growth in all
13 character and life skill areas.
This is the basis for CHANGED LIVES.
